I always try to be open minded when I try something new.
- When my boss in high school took me out to lunch every other week, he was constantly trying to convince me to try unique kinds of food I had never tasted before.
Sometimes I loved it like the fried tripe that I swore I would hate. But other foods like calamari had my stomach churning from the moment they hit my tongue. I get that escargot is a delicacy, but the idea of eating snails doesn’t excite me to say the least. It more or less disgusts me, but at least I gave it a chance. If someone offered me any of that food again, I’m confident that I would decline. However, you’d think that things would be different with marijuana products if you’re someone who loves to smoke weed. Yet, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to try a cannabis edible. I have heard different versions of the story. Some say they’re amazing and last a while so you can go to an amusement park or see a concert without needing to get high again halfway through. Then there are people who say edibles do absolutely nothing when they eat them, causing them to waste money at the cannabis dispensary. But it’s the third group that worries me the most—the people who claim they had horrible experiences akin to “bad trips” while consuming cannabis edibles that turned out to be stronger than they initially expected. Luckily I didn’t have a bad experience, but I turned out to be someone in the second group. Cannabis edibles don’t give me the same effects as cannabis inhalation products, that’s for sure.
